Spirit, Soul and Body
God has already done everything he is going to do for us. Period. It was finished at the Cross of Calvary. However, when your body is screaming at you in pain and when symptoms appear unrelenting, standing on God’s finished work can be hard.
We must understand the concept of spirit, soul and body. You have a soul, which is your mind your will and emotions. You are a Spirit, made in the image of God. That is who we really are. You can see my body, the house that is holding me, but you cannot see my spirit, which is the real me. You hear and watch me express my soulish area (thoughts, will, and emotions) through my body. You see my body, my house. Like all houses, as time goes by, you need a little adjusting here and there. A little paint helps anything and everything. However, if you aren’t careful, when you look in the mirror, you’ll think you are looking at you. You will identify yourself as your body instead realizing that the real you lives inside the body. Again, the real you is your spirit man that has been made in the image of God.
Now, the part that messes us all up is the soul. Your soul (thinking process, emotions, etc) directs the body. Your spirit man wants to direct you body. In fact, the moment you are born again, the Spirit of God moves inside of your spirit man. You carry God inside of you, including all of His healing power. Yes, the Healer lives inside of you!
In order for the healing power of God to be seen in your body, it has to go through your soulish area. Our thinking process, including all we have learned from TV, the internet, all that we have read and learned becomes a mass that absolutely can block what God is trying to do in you. Our past experiences, religious knowledge, and all the junk that we have been taught contrary to what the Bible says can stop the flow of healing in our bodies.
You must clean the filter, the filter of our thoughts. You must move everything out of the way that blocks the trueness of who God is from showing Himself in your life. You must clean your filter, by thinking like God thinks. It is a choice what you believe. It’s not complicated. You must decide to let God be God in your life.
No matter how long you have been in a mess, God is bigger than your situation. To clean the filter of your mind, you must start quoting the Word of God. By the stripes of Jesus, I am healed (Isaiah 53:5). He sent His Word and healed me (Psalm 107:20).
Speak the Word of God until it becomes more real to you than what the doctor says. If you can get your mind to agree with God, your body will follow suit. Healing will come into your life and symptoms will leave. The Word of God is true and powerful! Find out for yourself what God has said and let His Word be enough for you!
